The witness, -• 32-year-old Abraham Suzkever. who was called to testify by Russian Prosecutor Smirnov, said he spent two years in the Ghetto of Wilno but escaped with partisans. Before testimony started, the court rejected the reouest of former German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop to call Winston Churchill as a defens ewitness and passed on other defense requests. Suzkever, pale and bespectacled. told the tribunal 80,000 Jews lived in Wilno when the Germans seized the city. Jewish men were dragged out by the Germans, he said, while those who sought to hide were hunted out by dogs. "Bodies in groups of 100 and 150 lay about," the witness said. "There were rivulets of blood as if it had rained red drops." Suzkever said he and other Jews were striped naked, taken lo a synogogue and forced al bayonet poinl to dance around a pyramid a burning logs. Most of them were nearly unconscious when their tormentors left, he said. He said he was awakened an other night and marched with other Jews thrugh the streets to prison where they were lined up and beaten with sticks by German soldiers. He said he finally escaped and hid in his mother's house after swimming across a river. Massey said he would recommend to the city council thai Ihe ivil Service Commission make a study of wages to correct inequalities. Later, the city council approved the recommendation. The throng which marched on the city hall were members of various AFL unions who took a "holiday" in suport of striking city workers. Massey agreed to reinstate the strikers with no loss of seniority or civil service rights. Previously, he had issued an ultimatum taking them off the city payroll wilh loss of civil service status.

The Doctor Says: By WILLIAM A, O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Recent reports indicate that two to 15 per cent of our people may carry in their intestines the cysts of the parasite which causes am- ebiasis, a fairly common disease of tropical and oriental countries. Acute nrncbiasis causes diarrhea of increasing severity, leading to dystentery. Chronic amebiasas causes periodic attacks of relatively mild dyslentery. Most common form of the disease iir mild abdominal discomfort and diarrhea alternating with constipation, with the symptoms resembling so-called chronic appendicitis or other vague abdominal disease. Healthily individuals may carry the parasite in its dormant stage. CARRIED BY FOOD Contaminated food and water which have been soiled by bowel discharges of infected persons are the usual spreaders of urncbiasas. Ojher possibilities are hand to mouth transfer, and flics. Control measures include protection of common water supplies, health supervision of food handlers, and ef- forcemcnl of laws regulating sanitary practices of persons engaged in the preparation and serving of food, especially moist food eaten raw. Most victims of this disease do not get well because they fail, to continue treatment. Apparent recovery follows a few weeks' treatment and tendency is to stop. But in the course of a few months the disease recurs. Chief complications of amebiasis is liver abscess caused by amoeba which are carried to the liver from the bowel. In areas where the disease is common, soreness and tenderness over the liver with signs of infpnlfnn are indications for immediate drug treatment. EtVICATION URGED Healthy carriers are the principal source of amebiasas. Routine examination of food handlers has been recommended as a control measure, but in practice this is of little value. More effective would be leaching sanitary practices to food handlers. Severity of amebiasis is variable, as many carriers never seem to have difficulty. Some servicemen will return with this disease and may constitute an additional secure of infection. They should receive drug treatment until at yeast three examinations are negative. Relapses should be treated vigorously, and the practice of good personal hygiene should be stressed.

Investigate Death of Seaman Mobile, Ala., Feb. 2R —OT— An investigation was ordered today into the drowning of J. C. Moore, navy seaman from Poplar Bluff, Mo., after Deputy Sheriff J. C. Holcombc and a navy board of inquiry expressed belief that the death was not accidental. Moore's body was recovered Monday from the Gulf of Mexico near Dauphin island after a two week search. He was a crewman on the USS Guardoquo docked at Alabama Dry Dock Shipbuilding Co. Holcombe said a check of More's movements indicated he was last seen in a Mobile night club Feb. 7 nearly five hours before his shore leave was scheduled to end. "The condition of Moore's body when it was recovered was such as lo lead us lo believe he was nol in water throughout the period of more than two weeks he was missing," Holcombe said. "I am convinced he went or was taken forcibly to either Cedar Point or Dauphin island and our investigation will take us there this week."

R. W. Crawford, president of tlie Mississippi river commission, and other officials of the ar'njy engineer corps. Estimating roughly that seventy [ive per cent of Arkansas cotton farm land lies in an area of the stale subject to flood from one or more rivers, Governor Laney declared thai lood conlrol and drainage are matters of prime interest in developing natural resources of the stale. : The governor was accompanied here by D. D. Terry, state director of flood control, and W. T. Murphy; Jr., of the Arkansas Resources and Development Commission. Although the proposed plan of the engineer corps for controlling floods on the Red river was the principal matter for discussion here today, Governor Laney said before entering the conference that he intended lo review the entire Arkansas flood problem wilh Gen. Craw- ford. ! He pointed oul that rivers flow-' ing through the state drain an area j as far distant as Colorado.

"There wa* a letter. 1 guess I hadn't oil-lit to have touched it, but it had your name on it, Mr. Willson brought it with me." .."Thank you, Hendricks,' Willson said. His voice partly I knew with gr riendricks' lovally. He read it "while we all waited Ihen he said to Fletch, "We'll haw: to get down there right away and we'll have to call Jcii'roy HaV/lott— again." I knew how much of an ordeal il was for him by the way he said "again." He came over'and put his arm around my Miss Jenny and squeezed her .shoulders ueinlv 'It's pretty bad, Jenny." She patted his hand where it rested on her shoulder, and said "It s all right, darling. Don't worry about me." He handed her lhe leller U w s indeed pretty bad. It was a km- leller, tlie gist of it was lhat Andrew Mites had been paving Philipa lor-of all ihmgs-nol suing lor a divorce from Fletch. The queer, bitter remarks he had made irom time to time sounded in my ears. "Women amuse me," he had said, and when Mr. Willson had remarked thai thai was one amusement on which he wouldn't have to pay tax. he had answered shortly, "1 wonder." Then there was lhat remark on the terrace the night that Phillipa naci died, "Remember, will you Nana, that what I have clone I. have done for Jenny," alul his remarks about saving. Jenny heartache but it s being the wrong way. Then lhat morning he had said that the twins were "money in the bank for Phillipa." He had been paying Phillipa since shortly after the birth of the twins —he was the "uncle from California"; Phillipa had no family when she had told him that she proposed to sue Fletch for a divorce charging fraud in their marriage because she had not been told prior lo it lhal he was Ihe adopted .son of Stephen Willson. ••Legally. 1 am firmly of the opinion lhal she would not have had sul'iicienl grounds." Undo Andrew had written, "bul it would have meant heartache for Jenny, anrl fur Fletch and Betsy, loo. in ihe revival of all the old scandal that should be left deci'iitly dead. "But aside from the revival of an old scandal, 1 had to consider the boys, one of whom Fk'tch paid me the compliment of giving my name. Undoubtedly their custody' would, under the circumstances, have been given to Phillipa, and thai not only would have been harmful for the/ boys, but would have broken Jen- the ny's heart. You see what I have | clone, I did for Jenny." , His letter went on "to explain thai 1 some months before the twins were \ born, he had been without a see- ' rotary and Phillipa had volunteered ' lo come lo his olfice and help him. i He had been called hurriedly from the office one day and had inad- i verlcnlly left the strong box con-; laiiiin;; a lot of familv papers open 1 in his safe.
